BRITISH Transport Police officers have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to following an assault on two staff members at West Worthing station.

The incident happened on Wednesday, November 12, shortly after 7pm.

A man boarded the 7.30pm train from Brighton to West Worthing, after which, a member of staff asked to see his ticket. The man refused to show it, or provide his name and address.

Staff at West Worthing station tried to speak to the man when he got off the train, just after 8pm, but he pushed both members of staff, before leaving the station.

Investigating officer PC Russell Stobbs said: “I am keen to identify the man in the CCTV image as assaults against rail staff will not be tolerated. The two victims were going about their daily duties and should not have to suffer this behaviour.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40, or text 61016, quoting reference SSUB/B12 of 08/12/14. Information can also be passed anonymously to independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
